Platja de Palma
Platja de Palma is the biggest piece of coast of the capital of the Balearic archipelago (4,6 kilometres long, divided into 15 beaches), situated 14 kilometres east from this town, although the last part belongs to the municipality of Llucmajor.
The name of Platja de Palma was established by sociedad Mar de Mallorca, which used to exploit the beach (sun loungers, umbrellas, bars and refreshment stalls), to unify by one name Cala Estància, Can Pastilla and s’Arenal.
The coast has fine-grained sand and gentle slope, which makes bathing easier for small children. The nearest port facilities are located at Club Nàutic s’Arenal, at 2,5 nautical miles toward west.
The natural vegetation of the dunes ecosystem which retains the sand was destructed and nearly disappeared in 1989. therefore 400.000 tons of sand where introduced to give the beach the spectacular present dimensions.
Parallel to the coast there is the biggest concentration of hotels in Majorca and one of the most importants in the Mediterranean area. Between 1960 and 1968 the biggest part of these hotels were built and at the end of the 20th century the coastline was redesigned, with palms along a new promenade and road traffic was limited.
This beach is the best example for mass tourism at Majorca, with a very high occupancy and the gathering of thousands of tourists and residents. The accessibility by car is easy. There is no parking area for private cars next to the coast. This is why we recommend the public transport, the nearest bus stop is located at 50 metres.

The municipality of Palma is situated in the southwest of Majorca, and it is the most important municipality in population. The city of Palma is the political, administrative and business centre of the Balearic archipelago. The service sector, tourism and construction lead the economy since the sixties of the 20th century. Quinto Cecilio Metelo founded Palma in 123 BC after conquering Majorca for Rome in order to definitely control the Mediterranean basin. Medina Mayurqa, the Arab name of Palma, was integrated in the omeyan state of Al-Andalus at the beginning of the 10th century. The Christian king Jaume I d’Aragó conquered the island on the 31st of December 1229, calling it Ciutat de Mallorques. In 1230 it became the capital of the Regne de Mallorca.

This municipality is irrigated beach some torrents that flow into the sea on its coast, with Torrent de sa Riera flowing through the city centre.
The cultural variety includes the old town of Palma (Roman, Arab, Jewish vestiges, stately palaces and courtyards), Castell de Bellver (round military fortress of the 14th century, at 112 metres to guard the bay of Palma), la Seu (gothic cathedral with the later intervention of the architect Antoni Gaudí and the painter Miquel Barceló), Palau de l’Almudaina, Convent de Sant Francesc (with the tomb of Ramon Llull), Consolat de Mar (seat of the Govern de les Illes Balears), sa Llotja, Ajuntament de Palma, Consell de Mallorca, Gran Hotel, Palau Solleric, Palau March or Fundació Joan i Pilar Miró, where a big part of the graphic works of Joan Miró are guarded.
